paris - judging from the yves saint laurent show, the shape of things to come (in fashion) will be high-waisted, loose fitting, yet still sexy. the genius in this collection - and with stefano pilati (designer for ysl) for that matter - is that it manages to echo trends we have been seeing on runways all season (the return of the high waist, or rather, the natural waist/ harem style pants versus slim leg/geometric shapes and structure) YET elevates these trends to a level all its own. these clothes are bold, not only because of their styling, but because they mark a clear turn in fashion trends. as you look at them, you may NEVER see yourself wearing pieces like this. but in a matter of months , or even a year, once high street brands and mass manufacturers have grown comfortable with these new silhouettes, we will all be wearing them. guaranteed.
